Authors must submit a draft of the proposed paper for evaluation by the sponsoring Technical Committee. Abstracts or digests alone will not be considered. One author must be designated as the corresponding author, and an e-mail address must be provided for that person. All correspondence will be conducted via e-mail. Authors are responsible for assuring that e-mail sent to the corresponding author will NOT be blocked by a spam filter.

At least one author must register to attend the conference and pay the full conference registration fee prior to submitting each final manuscript.  IEEE student members, IEEE Life Members, and unemployed attendees must select a full conference registration rate in order to qualify to submit papers.  Papers in the main technical program will be archived in IEEE Xplore. Papers that are scheduled for presentation but not actually presented will not be archived in Xplore.

Final manuscripts for the Conference Record will be submitted electronically via Scholar One Manuscripts site. All papers will be scanned for plagiarism in CrossCheck. The submitting author must execute an IEEE Copyright Transfer at the time of manuscript submission.

All papers sponsored for presentation by the Power System Engineering; Power System Protection; Energy Systems; Codes and Standards; and Metals Industry and Mining Industry Committees will be reviewed for possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Application or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, and authors will receive feedback from this review following the 2022 IAS Annual Meeting.  Note that to satisfy IEEE requirements, authors may be required to revise\ their papers during the course of the review. 

Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Industrial Automation and Control; Electrostatic Processes; and Industrial Lighting and Display Committees may request that revised versions of their paper(s) be reviewed for publication following presentation at the 2022 IAS Annual Meeting.

Not all IAS Technical Committees hold sessions at the IAS Annual Meeting every year.  If a committee is not listed in this call for papers, you should contact the appropriate IAS Technical Committee or Department Chair for more information.
